SUPER IMPORTANT PERCY JACKSON NEWS!!!HOLY MOTHER OF GODS UNCLE RICK ANNOUNCED THAT HE IS WRITING A NEW PERCY JACKSON SERIES!!!! OMG I THINK I JUST DIED :iconicantplz:SUPER IMPORTANT PERCY JACKSON NEWS!!!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
An excerpt: And I will announce this here for the first time, right now I'm working on a new book of the Greek myths, told from Percy Jackson's point of view. My hope is to offer the original stories, but told in a modern perspective that appeals to our kids today. I decided to set aside the earlier anthologies, as much as I love them – Hamilton, D'Aulaires, Evslin, Greene – because the writing is a little dated. Instead, I've leapfrogged straight back to the primary sources. I'm using Ovid, Hesiod, Homer and many others, and trying to cast the entire scope of Greek mythology afresh. John Rocco, who does my covers, is illustrating, and we're hoping to create something that's going to be useful in your libraries and classrooms.
Anyway, one of my goals is

My photography course at HogwartsUuuugh you guys, my sleep has been so terrible. I woke up out of a pretty entertaining dream, though.My photography course at Hogwarts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was taking a photography class at Hogwarts and Snape was our teacher. I think Ron and Harry might also have been in our class but I never did see them. Our assignment at the time was to get ten outstanding photographs of animals in their natural habitat and he told us we had to roll up our pant-legs and go wading in a swamp full of alligators and poisonous snakes if we hoped to get any good ones. He meant this literally. This was our assignment. (Oh, Snape! )
So I actually did it; I took off my shoes and wandered into the bog, dodging snakes and snapping away. I took so long about it that I missed the start of critique and I sort of ran into Snape with some of my classmates on a bridge while I was headed back to the castle. He was reviewing their photos (and grading ruthlessly, as he does). He saw me and said, "What are you doing? You knew we had critique."
I answered, "Yeah, I kn

Also wanted to take this time to thank everyone for the suggestions for the portfolios. As I am running short on time, and money, I opted for DA's portfolio. I intend when I have more time/money to go through them again and pick one for professional use, so thanks again everyone.

Me, myself and my problem with Doujins TT___TT
How are you? I'm just fed up XD
It said that some psychologists tell some patients, to healing:
- 1st step is admitting you have a problem I do.
- 2nd step is identifying the problem I constantly abandon my doujins.
- 3rd is learning how to correct it Applying the only effective methodology that worked for me in the past with the only doujins I finished, I mean, the 2 doujins I have for sale.
I don't know if some of you also have this problem: you start some story (drawn or written) and you end up abandoning it... you try to encourag

Introducing my Original Characters!Hi everybody!Introducing my Original Characters!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
My "Draw my OCs" Contest is open, so the time has come to tell you more about my OCs and their stories!
Below you'll see the list of the comics/projects/stories to which my OCs belong and you'll be able to know more about their pasts, their behaviors, their love stories and much more!
The order in which the OCs are listed doesn't mean anything: there's no project I like more than the others, or no OC that you'll have to draw to have more chances to win. Everything depends on your ability to portray them and their stories, independently from your drawing skills. If the drawing is technically perfect, but the characters are completely different from the ones described here (physically and temperamentally) it won't win, because it doesn't represent my OCs in the right way.
So, do your best and don't forget to read the descriptions carefully! ^^

Theories regarding Jim's fate (major spoilers)Please do not read this if you have not watched the episode yet. I have warned you. This post contains goddamn amount of spoilers for the Reichenbach Fall.Theories regarding Jim's fate (major spoilers)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I just wasted a good portion of my time writing this TL;DR because honestly, listing my opinions one by one and then brooding over the possibility of each is the only coping mechanism for what Mofftiss has done to my mind. I of course, really wish that Jim is alive. He is a brilliant character and Andrew Scott is a brilliant actor. It'll feel slightly different if season 3 doesn't include him in it ):
Apologies for grammar and sentence structure mistakes in advance. Because I'm just too lazy too check lol.
A deviant told me he/she believes Jim is not dead, and asks if he/she's the only one thinking this:
You're not! I'm desperately hoping that this is the case too! I mean, I don't think one is cleverer than another, and if Sherlock could come up with an elaborate escape plan in case he HAD to resort to 'killing' him
Just because you shot it in the street...JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"Just because you shot it in the street...1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre http://myraincheck.deviantart.com/art/Statistics-on-Street-Photography-371453155 .
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the street, it is not photography of your cat, or of graffiti or 'street art' (that's another genre of photography), it is not photography of your friends or family on trip.
Let's see some attempts to define street photography:
"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the stream of everyday life" (from 'Street photography Now').
" For the most part, however, the photographers discussed in these pages have tried to work without being noti
Cheap Easy Vegetarian Dishes?So, I am not a cook. Not in the remotest sense of the word, mostly because I have neither time nor patience for cooking.Cheap Easy Vegetarian Dishes?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm wondering, then, if you guys have any recommendations for vegetarian dishes? Pretty easy and cheap?
Tikki Masala (comes in a jar) with rice - Mmmmmm, so easy to make (literally just heat it up and dump it on the rice) and so good. Usually costs 5 dollars a jar and makes about 10 meals.
Veggie Pasta sauce with noodles ($1.00 for noodles, $2.50 for sauce, makes tons of food, super easy)
Fettuccine Alfredo sauce with alfredo noodles ($1.00 for noodles, $2.50 for sauce, same, super easy).
Breakfast burritos - local cage-free eggs, cheese, tortilla, and occasionally morningstar farms veggie sausage. I usually hate veggie substitutes, but I prefer the taste of veggie sausage.
- I can mix these up, making just eggs, just eggs/sausage, or omelets, or eggs in a basket (egg fried in bread), french toast, blueberry

Tokyo bluesEXTREME STREET PHOTOGRAPHY - VTokyo blues9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Are there places were street photography is impossible? Are there countries easier than others, or harder than others? How is it street shooting like in exotic places, or places you never visited, places that are completely different from what you are used to? I asked a few street photographers around the world to share with us their experiences.
This article was written for us by Lukasz Kazimierz aka :iconburningmonk:
Japan is a fascinating country with an unusual mix of the traditional and modern. It's a magical place filled with anime, cosplayers, samurai, sushi, and all the strangest things imaginable. Wrong! Well, not really, but this is just the cliché, outer covering. When newcomers just scratch the surface of this country, this cliché is all they find. But, in reality, Japan is a place like any other: full of human beings who have normal lives with all their little dr

Single character illustrations (portraits/full body, colored) are $90 USD
I'll also do website headers, book covers, album covers, posters, etc. but the price will start at $90 and go up from there depending on the complexity of the illustration.
So if you're interested, the first five slots are open! You can note me here if you like, but you'll have a better chance grabbing my attention via e-mail: email@example.com
I'll do them in the order that I get them, and I'll give you an idea of the time frame. Please provide a description of you're project, and any reference material you may want me to use!

It's a friendly competition to see who can write the most in a set period of time. This can be over the course of a month with daily interval updates, or over the course of a few minutes with instant results.
In a chatroom setting the game is fast paced fun with the timer set to a few minutes and participants compete in several rounds. Speed writing is key!
This is the standard way the Chat Tour hosts a Word War. If you are hosting your own Word War game you can modify these rules and timers for your own purpose, but be sure to inform all participants of the variations before you start! (Please note: this is not an invitation to steal this journal text.)
Step by Step Instructions:
1. The host will tell everyone to prepare for the round, and allow a minute or two for participants to open their word processor of choice.
2. The host will set a 15 minute timer.

Cosplay, short for costume play, is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character, or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan, but recent trends have included American cartoons and science fiction.
Favorite sources include manga, anime, tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies, as well as anthropomorphic manifestations.
